You brush your hair and your teeth daily, but do you brush your skin? Let me assure you, adding the extra five minutes into your skincare routine is well worth the investment.
Why dry skin brushing?
Dry skin brushing is growing in popularity. While dry skin brushing won’t be the magic solution for every ailment, it can be a great way to support skin health, circulation, and relaxation.
Did you know? Your skin receives approximately one third of all the blood that is circulated in the body and is the first to show signs of imbalance or nutrition deficiency. Your skin also works alongside the liver and kidneys in detoxing the body.
Why Noni and dry skin brushing:
Cellulite is composed of toxic fat residing under the epidermis (usually around the buttocks and thighs) resulting in the wrinkling/dimpling of the skin. Dry skin brushing is believed to tighten the epidermis and aid in breaking up cellulite. This is an important element in detoxifying the body.
Noni can help maintain blood sugar levels that are already in the normal range thus helping your body properly break down fats and remove them from your system. Noni can also help maintain blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range so you can attain the ideal heart rate/fat burning zone while working out.

Suffer from dry, dull skin? Another benefit one can expect from dry skin brushing is the removal of dead skin cells. When dead cells are exfoliated, new skin cells are able form more quickly. Not only will your skin become healthier, you may experience fewer breakouts due to clean pores.
For clear, bright skin, it’s important to exfoliate frequently. But did you know that most exfoliants you buy in the store are actually too harsh for your skin? Noni is a gentle, effective exfoliant that removes dead skin without doing any damage to the living, growing skin cells. Apply a generous coat of noni lotion to the area to be exfoliated and rub the lotion into your skin. Keep rubbing until little balls appear on your skin. Those balls are made up of dead skin that was ready to be sloughed off. Rub them off with a washcloth, apply a second coat of noni lotion, and let it air dry. Couple dry skin brushing several times a week (on even days) with gentle noni lotion (on odd days), you can kiss your dull skin goodbye! Click here for more
Nutrition, oxygen, and toxins are transported throughout the body via blood. Toxins are everywhere: the air we breathe, the food we eat, and skin care products. Dry skin brushing can improve blood flow. Increased blood flow and the normal process of perspiration helps the continuous release of toxins stored in the body.
Nitric oxide and scopoletin have been scientifically proven to be vasodilators thereby increasing blood flow throughout the body. Click here for more Noni fruit is also a powerful natural antioxidant. As you can see, noni fruit and dry skin brushing can help detox the body naturally.
Immune System Health:
One of the most beneficial qualities of dry skin brushing is the effect it has on the lymphatic system. Lymphocytes (white blood cells) are named after this major body system. Lymphocytes circulate through your body fighting toxic agents and antibodies that threaten your health. Dry skin brushing increases the flow of lymphocytes directly contributing to a stronger immune system.
Another part of a strong immune system is managing persistent inflammation. Persistent inflammation occurs when the immune system doesn’t receive a break. When that happens, the immune system becomes fatigued. A fatigued immune system can lead to frequent illness, development or worsening of allergies, and autoimmune disease. Noni’s high levels of scopoletin naturally help support a healthy response to inflammation in the body.
